Bannister-backed armchair

A fine and rare maple and ash bannister-backed armchair in original structural condition and retaining an old red-stained surface.  The shape of the finials, slight bow to the back, and unusual turned elements to the legs and stretchers relate this to a specific shop tradition near Waltham MA.  These chairs were made from c.1740-1780, and this example is probably c.1770-80.  48" ht, 16 1/2" seat ht.
